Stepsisters (1985) – Episode 09

Old school video game fans will enjoy the scene where Shinobu is searching through an 1980s arcade. At 27:23 you can hear the sounds of Moon Cresta, a unique three-stage rocket shooter from Nichibutsu. Shinobu is also briefly standing in front of a sit-down Thunder Storm, the anime LaserDisc shooter that was known as Cobra Command in North America.

    Thanks, as always.

    I just want to point a minor thing that a noticed watching this episode, is that the opening singer is called ‘Miki Asakura’ instead of ‘Miki Asura’. It’s really nitpicking, you guys have done a great work as always.

    So I want to thank you and the GUIS for this wonderful series. I hope you can finish it, because it’s so incredible… Keiko Watanabe was a great actress, it’s too bad she left her career.
    Greetings from Brazil!
